Chanterelles / Kurka

chanterelles kurka

A 1960s postage stamp featuring Chanterelles / Kurka issued by the Polish Post Office.

Chanterelles (Kurka) are wild mushrooms with a bright yellowey colour that grow particularly well in Poland where they are highly prized. They can be found anywhere there are trees between June and September. Unfortunately, unlike Borowik, Chanterelles don’t dry well, so are used fresh soon after picking.
